    I'm wearing a pair of Merrell Topo Moc Pro's myself.

    The Nike Shox look nice and I might try 'em but check the soles of the Shox model you are considering. I have seen some that have tons of cracks and crevasses (and some that rather smooth). Don't know about you, but if I accidentally step in a pts glop of choice, I don't want any of it hiding in a difficult place to clean on my shoes.

    :imbar Ok.. Im a girl.. but I would suggest some shoes with a good sturdy top to them and not a mesh top. I used to wear my brand of shoe that I use for my running training- NO PROBLEMS... until last week when I started my rounds in the AM a SCD (Seq. compression device) foot machine feel off of a bed and broke my right foot.:selfbonk: I'll be going with a more "protectant shoe" when I head back to work........


    ... ya really want to know what the funny part is.... The patient had this machine on his bed and he was a Bilat. lower ext. knee ampt. of many years ago.:uhoh21: :uhoh21: --- I'm just wondering how the hospital will bill the use of the machine to the patient's insurance company... can you say AUDIT!

    Good Luck

    I bought something from Payless.

    Have regretted it ever since. But then again, a starving student can't really choose!

    I hope I find something comfy for my feet! I'll keep this thready in mind when I get a job and need to find shoes for me feet

    I wear Klogs to work in and Dr. Scholl's for school. They are ugly, but after a 12 hour day, your feet will thank you. I also own Z Coils and they are wonderful once you get them broken in, but careful! The springs are bad to grab IV tubing and will "Tug" out a line in a matter of seconds! Best wishes!

    I wear Adidas or Spalding running shoes. Great arch support and heel/toe cushioning. I tried Klogs and hated them. They kept flying off my feet when I responded to codes, and I got tired of arriving sans one shoe.

    I also get my shoes from a discount sporting goods store. There is usually something decent on sale.

    I looked at www.nike.com and searched for Shox.

    I have looked on there but they do not have ALL WHITE shox. Like the top is white, but the bottom part is a different color. I am looking for the same thing too. Our shoes have to be all white. I have even tried to personalize my own shox on their website, but all white was not an option. Does anyone else know where to get them?

    Just got a pair of New Balance 811's, inserted high end gell...total of 80 bucks for next weeks clinicals. Most comfortable shoes I own and they are sneakers disquised as white shoes. Made right in Maine. Find them in an athletic footware store near you!

    I wear sandals, like Teva sandals.
    Are there rules that you must wear shoes? - there aren't in Denmark
    I once tried with shoes on and it's just too hot.
    The ones that dont wear sandals wear, I don't know the word for it, but those type of shoes santaclaus also wears - offcourse they are made of rubber and leather instead of wood, but anyway. I don't think they are very comfortable, so I don't like those either.
    I'm a sandal-man. Offcourse they have the disadvantage that if you get some disgusting stuff (blood, vomit, urin etc) on you it hits the feet, and not just the shoe

    I had to find a comfortable pair of all white shoes in a 13. Not too much of a problem, but try seeking them out with width of a 4E.

    I love New Balance shoes and they fit me like a glove but I don't like any of their all white styles, so I went with a Wide Width Klogz Closed back shoe. It's rubber, and stretchy and they don't hurt my feet much til I take em off, and 2 days in a row is even worse. They stretch but not really far enough. I would love to be able to afford a pair or Birkies to use and have them custom fit but hell, ya do what you can afford and at this point that aint a lot. LOL
